General information

Lafora’s disease is an inherited, late onset, progressive myoclonic epilepsy. One of the features of the disease is a myoclonus, a sudden contraction of a group of muscles characterized by jerking the head backwards, which can be induced by flashing lights, sudden sounds and movement especially close to the dog’s head. Lafora’s disease can occur spontaneously in any dog breed however some dog breeds are predisposed.

Clinical features

The first signs of Lafora's disease occur over 5 years of age with jerking of the head backwards and slowly progresses over many years with the occurence of other neurological symptoms like ataxia, blindness and dementia.
